If you want some insight on the creative process behind the upcoming album release from the Lumineers, pay a visit to the Poet’s Walk trail in Red Hook.
That’s where Greene County resident Simone Felice, who produced “III” by the Lumineers, took founding members Wesley Schultz and Jeremiah Fraites on hikes during breaks from recording at The Clubhouse studio in nearby Rhinebeck.
“You can’t solve every problem by just staring at a computer,” Felice said. “You’ve got to get some fresh air — step away from the process.”
There were also hikes along creeks in the Catskills. And motorcycle rides that Felice and Schultz took through those mountains, passing through Woodstock, Palenville and Phoenicia along the way, offered inspiration as well.
These are just a few of the links that the Lumineers maintain to the Hudson Valley, a region with which they have built strong bonds over years. And this connection underscores the draw that the Hudson Valley keeps for those with a creative flair who wish to immerse themselves in a region with an enduring artistic legacy.
As for “III,” Felice said, “Through the entire album, you can feel the raw beauty and ramshackle danger that is in the Catskills… We’re so proud of this record.”
You can get a preview of how the chemistry between Felice, Schultz and Fraites came together by listening to “Gloria,” a song from “III” released last week.
And the Lumineers — known for the song “Ho Hey” — will likely play tunes from the new album when they perform in August at Woodstock 50, the Woodstock anniversary concert set for Watkins Glen.
The band will release “III,” their third album, and the second produced by Felice and recorded in Rhinebeck, on Sept. 13. “III” was recorded in September and October 2018.
“We went into this album really wanting to do something that was raw and real and we’ve been really feeling a big inspiration from mythology,” said Felice, who with his former band, The Felice Brothers, performed at the Bardavon 1869 Opera House in Poughkeepsie. “I think listeners will find this album is like a big mythology — the whole thing.” This is the kind of song(s) you wouldn’t want to miss on your playlist.
